Is there a dealer on the forums that sells Seas?
In my quest to get new speakers I'm exhausting every angle before ordering. I'm down to a couple rainbow choices, DLS, Dynaudio and Seas.

thanks

no there isn't a dealer of these speakers on THIS forum. the best and most reliable place is to buy at http://www.mobilesq.com/store/. i've talk to a guy who works/runs the site and he is very knowledgeable.

Mobilesq still has the 10% discount if you're interested. Not a bad deal at all.

What can I say. I'm a fan of their products, especially their home audio. Most other midrange sounds unclear to me after hearing a properly set up Lotus system. :( If my friend didn't want my mids, I would have sold it to you for cheap ($80 shipped for a pair). Too bad he wont give it back lol.

thanks for the info. I did see that mobilesq site, just wasn't sure if they were good or not. I think I'd pick up the reference component set. The higher end ones would be nice but more than I want to spend.
One thing I'm confused on, is that set 4 ohm or 8 ohm? I was reading that a lot of the Seas drivers are 8 ohm but no mention of the component sets.

correction, the ones I'm looking at is the performance range. The reference set it the more expensive.

Does anybody know how the performance componet set would stack up to Rainbow(slc or pro) as far as midrange/midbass?

They are good.

The people that own the site are Dual700 and Dingaling from ECA.

By checking out the raw drivers, it appears the mids are 4ohm and the tweets are 6ohm, so they'd be considered a "4ohm" set.

The lotus are 4ohm. I bought mine from mobile SQ. Try the diy forums. I have seen them post on that forum.

also excellent choice of speakers. tell us when you get them and what you think of them.

also did you buy these already? some guy at eca is selling the entire set for a pretty good price, http://forum.elitecaraudio.com/showthread.php?threadid=124882&pagenumber=1.

Those would be nice! I realized that I was looking at the performance set though which is under $500. If I had $600 to spend I'd pick those reference up from that guy.
